15f Pump Bearings....
Changing the bearings in my 15f ,any tips on getting the bearings in and out?

I was doing a pump rebuild kit when i did it so since i was changing the seals anyway, on the big front bearing i punched the seals out and used a deep 3/8 drive socket that was smaller on the drive side than on the side where the head of the bolt or nut goes in. So then you could stick the smaller side through the hole in the bearing and the socket would catch on it taper where it goes from small to large and that allowed me to pound on the socket w/ a dead blow.
the small bearing in the tail cone i used a long punch and slowly worked it out by tapping around the outer ring.
Hope this helps.

get the kawi bearing removal kit, its a little expensive but perfect for the job, plus it has the sizes for all the other bearings, ie sc, idler.etc. for your 250.
ps. get a hydraulic press as well.

its done, wasnt that big of a deal, removal was easy, and I put the pump in the oven at 250* and the bearings in the freezer, went and ate dinner and they pretty much slipped right in............

I did the same thing on my ring and pinion set, heat the bearings and cool the shaft, works every time!
